Public Health: Congress Is Facing a Time Crunch to Repeal Obamacare

Inaction on health reform complicates some of the policy choices in tax reform, too. The current Senate health bill includes substantial tax cuts and several hundred billion dollars in projected savings. If that bill is not going to become law, it could alter the choices about which taxes get cut or raised as part of the tax-only bill.PhotoOne of many reasons that the Senate would like to pass the health care bill promptly: Members of Congress and their staffs count on summer recess.Credit John Antczak/Associated PressCongress likes its summer vacationIf health reform isn’t wrapped up by the end of the month, it bumps up against Congress’s scheduled summer recess, a time when legislators like to go home to their districts, take a break from lawmaking, spend time with their families, and raise money. Many congressional staff members also go on vacation during the recess. Leaders could, of course, tell lawmakers and their staffs that they need to stick around and keep working until they pass a bill, but the scheduled recess tends to act as a deadline.September is going to be really busyObamacare repeal is a big political priority for Republican leaders and the White House.

Summer Again – Julia Gabriel

Summer Again Julia Gabriel Genre: Fiction & Literature Publish Date: March 29, 2017 Publisher: Serif Books Seller: Macmillan / Holtzbrinck Publishers, LLC Book 1 in the St. Caroline Series A sweet summer romance set on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay A wealthy heir called back home by family duty … The town of St. Caroline had never felt like home to Sterling Matthew. Even though the Matthew family could date their residence back nearly a hundred years, Sterling had grown up in boarding schools—and promptly decamped for the ski slopes of Europe after college. When his father falls ill, his mother calls him home to run the family business, the renowned Chesapeake Inn. What Sterling finds, though, is a business on shaky financial footing and a staff resistant to the radical changes he has to make. No matter. He’ll do what needs to be done … and then leave St. Caroline for good. A woman who’s pulled herself up by the bootstraps … For years, Lucy Wyndham wondered whether she’d ever catch another glimpse of the boy she’d crushed on at the Chesapeake Inn’s summer camp for disadvantaged kids. He’d been tall and quiet. Mysterious and aloof. And the owner’s son. Now he’s her boss and the attraction is just as strong—but they’re no more compatible today than they were as teenagers. When he informs her that the camp must be eliminated to improve the resort’s bottom line, she embarks on an ambitious campaign to save it. Even if the price is her job … and her heart. Summer Again was previously published as Falling for the Prodigal Son. […]
